I have seen this tree/bush with its deep maroon colored leaves all over my county, and I am just wondering what is the name of it. I know I should know, and maybe it blooms later. It just strikes me odd because of its coloring here in spring being so dark as if it were fall. Thank you for answering.

I think the leaves do look like maple leaves. I will enlarge my photo. I wonder if I can switch it out here for a closer look? Have never tried to change out a picture after I posted one in a question. You have so many beautiful trees everywhere!
Sent you photo of mine; it is def Japanese Maple but there are other red maples that do look similar; I just think this is somehow prettier. If you do get one and mulch around it, look each spring for shoots. Free trees!
Thanks, Jackie. That is it! I just tried to paste my close up I had taken, but it will not paste. Yes, I am going to get one! Looks like you were the first to state Jap. Maple, so I will choose your answer as best. Tx to all who answered.
I am not sure, Phyllis, as it has been pouring down rain so much here, I haven't noticed a thing LOL. Now, the sun is shining today and I have noticed these all over my county. Could very well be a plum tree. Thank you!
Thank you so much, Bob. I think you and Jackie just may be right on this one. Yes, the branches do start very low to the ground. I may try to swap out the photo so everyone can see a close up of the leaves. They are everywhere, I am noticing now.
I stopped at a local restaurant the other day, and there was another tree. I snapped a photo of it up close and the leaves do look like Maple leaves. I appreciate you. Blessings
Hi Besarien, I happened to stop at a local restaurant the other night, and there was one and the leaves looked just like that leaf on the top there to the far right you have featured here. Thank you! I did take a photo, but not sure if I can change.
Hi Char, wow, Burning Bush, interesting! Well, right now it looks deep purple or maroon is the only color that I know of what to call it. I will watch them and see how they turn. Thank you!
Hi Keven, I think you may be right, as I saw another one the other night and snapped a close up of the leaves and they do look like maple leaves. I don't have one in my yard, but they are all around that I have been noticing.
Thank you, Jo. I know your granny knows all about plants and such, and may know, especially if you have them down in paradise ...Caribbean : )
LOL yes it's really Paradise with just a few locus running around "brute beast"
LOL, Jo. I wish I could trade out this photo, because I got a close-up of the leaves today when I was somewhere else. These are everywhere here; I am noticing.
Hi Paul, wow, you certainly know your trees! Yes, I could do that, but they must be popular around here for they are everywhere and that color just stands out this time of year. I will try to add a close up photo here if I am able to do so. Thanks!
Hi Faith! I've pruned, trimmed and removed trees off and on for over 25 years.
Really, Paul! So, you are a tree expert. I will wander over to your side of HP Town to see if you have written any on trees ... I know you are right about one of these trees being the one in my photo.
I wouldn't say an expert lol, but it has been a way to make money over the years. I haven't written any Hubs on trees and probably won't. I've wrote a few Hubs from my heart to bring Glory to our Lord. Faith in Jesus and trying to do Gods will!
Thank you, Paul, for writing to His glory and His glory alone. God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
